A defensive tower on Mount Koressos, Ephesus at My Favourite Planet

A defensive tower on the peak at the western end of Mount Koressos (Bülbül Daği,
Nightingale Mountain), on the south side of the city of Ephesus. Fortification walls
were built along the top of the mountain during the Hellenistic period. At the time
the foot of this hill was on the coast, overlooking the city's ancient harbour.

Below, to the right of the solar panels, are the ruins of an ancient wall and buildings.
The entrance to a cave on Mount Koressos, Ephesus at My Favourite Planet

A man-made entrance to a cave high on Mount Koressos.

A local told me that the network of caves had been explored by archaeologists,
who discovered 25 km of tunnels through the mountain, and that they have not
yet discovered an end to them.
